his morning I found out something amazing. If you have a Starbucks gift card, you can use it to earn "stars" for each drink you purchase and once you get 5 stars you can get free things like a drink on your birthday and free extras in a customized drink. Once you hit 30 stars, you get a personalized card and some other stuff. I'm really excited because I heart Starbucks and I really needed another excuse to buy more coffee from them. Really.
I wore my new hat today! I got a couple of compliments on it, too. It was very warm and not even itchy. I'm surprised; I would expect Noro to be a bit itchy but it was fine. Mmm, I heart Noro Silk Garden...and they have the best colors! So vibrant. Although a bit hard to make items with. They tend to be a little eccentric.
Yesterday, I made peanut butter layer bars. I got the recipe from The Cookie Calendar and made a few adjustments to the layer bar. I didn't have peanut butter chips so I just put in peanut butter, and I didn't want to make cookies so I used graham crackers instead of cookie crumbs. I also added marshmallows and kept the white chocolate chips. It was a very decadent dessert but everyone seemed to enjoy it in study hall, even though I wasn't there to witness it. I think I'm going to try today's pretzels tomorrow afternoon.
